CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

When Andre Bacon repeatedly demanded a woman give him the keys to her 2012 Acura MDX in the Cragin neighborhood Saturday, Chicago Police said, she did so.

And then she closed the door to the garage where the car was parked, trapping Bacon inside until officers could come arrest him around 7:30 p.m., according to police reports.

Now Bacon, 21, of 113th and Harvard in Chicago, is charged with attempted vehicular hijacking and theft. Cook County Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil ordered Bacon held Sunday in lieu of $75,000 bail.

Police said Bacon approached his victim Saturday in the 3000 block of North Long. He repeatedly demanded she give him the keys to her car, authorities said. She handed them over, police said, then closed the garage door, ran away and called police.

Officers later met the victim, and she opened the garage door for them. Inside they allegedly found the car, with Bacon in the driver's seat, and the keys in the ignition.
